Willingness to listen and hear the voice of God in any form

Intuitively going to the heart of the matter and responding

Silently listening to what the heart sings or cries

Discerning the just and true path of action and following it

Openness to being challenged to see thing differently, or to be different

Making time to be still, silent before moving to action in response to need


To be wise

Is to seek and search for the kernel of truth in all we hear and see

To know that we cannot know everything,

but humbly seek to do and act as justly as we can

To acknowledge God in everything and everyone,

even when it is hard

To be the person we are called by God to be,

where and when we are.
